Old Dominion University assistant coach Kermit Buggs went to Western Tidewater to dig up this gem. Our #12 senior in the recruit757 Fab 30 is a small town kid with a shot at the big time.
Heading into the regular season, we recognize the top 30 senior prospects in the 757. We’ve scoured the region for talent for almost ten years now, keeping an eye on the best of the best, but also looking for opportunities to connect athlete and high school programs with college coaches. Coming in as the #12 senior prospect region-wide is Franklin wide receiver Drelyn Ford.

Franklin sees a star player come through every now and again. The Broncos won the Class 1 State Title back in 2008, in a year where three teams from the 757 won state titles. They also won it in 2004. In fact, while the Broncos struggled to a 3-7 record in 2017, you have to go back to the year 2000 to find a season where they didn’t make the playoffs prior to last year. That’s 16 straight postseason appearance and two state championships.
Ford’s range and athleticism at 6-5 and 205 pounds makes him an attractive target for a school like Old Dominion. The Monarchs were the first to offer Ford and got a commitment from him back in June.
In his junior season, Ford was a Class 1 Second Team All-State selection at defensive end, and he was also a Second Team All-State pick for basketball.
